WTO DG Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala | Forbes Top 100 Most Powerful Women

“World Trade Organization head Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala (No. 91) and IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva (No. 12) continue to play a crucial role in providing financial assistance and promoting global trade as the threat of a global recession rises.”

“Nearly a quarter of the leaders on the 2022 Forbes List Of The World’s Most Powerful Women play a major role in politics and policy at a time when rising inflation, supply chain disruptions, and a looming climate crisis threaten geopolitical stability. And while women remain vastly underrepresented throughout all levels of government, their combined political might continues to have an outsized impact on the world stage. Collectively, these women directly oversee or influence nearly 3 billion people and over half of the world’s GDP.”
